About Me

Dr. Feibi Zheng specializes in surgery for parathyroid disease, benign thyroid tumors, thyroid cancers, adrenal tumors, and familial endocrine disorders. She is passionate about guiding patients through the complex decision-making process for endocrine tumors and ensuring that they have a seamless experience from diagnosis through post-operative care and surveillance. Dr. Zheng is one of the few endocrine fellowship trained surgeons in Houston. She is recognized by Amino.com as one of the top 15% of surgeons nationally for her experience in the treatment of hyperparathyroidism.

At the age of 15, Dr. Zheng matriculated at the University of California, Berkeley where she graduated cum laude with a degree in Molecular and Cell Biology. She attended medical school at the University of California, San Diego. During her surgical residency training at Houston Methodist, she helped to establish the General Surgery Leadership and Health Care Administration Track, an 8 year program which blends clinical surgery training with practical experience in optimizing hospital systems for improved patient care and safety. She then completed her endocrine surgery fellowship at UCLA, where she received additional training in minimally invasive parathyroidectomy and single incision retroperitoneal adrenalectomy.

In addition to her clinical practice, she is the Assistant Clinical Program Director of Surgical Quality and Population Health for Houston Methodist Hospital, where she is leading the development of a telemedicine program for surgical patients who live long distances from specialized centers of care.  She also currently serves on the Committee for Perioperative Care of the American College of Surgeons which works to improve the quality of care for surgical patients across the country.
